Anonymous, 04 Feb 2016The Priv runs Android, so it's not a good business phone, b... moreKeep in mind that Priv is Blackberry's first Android device, and it is getting intensive updates, so app crashing and performance issues are solved (I don't have Priv, I just found from user experiences from internet).
Security issues are fixed in Android 6.0, and Priv will get that upgrade sometime this year (I found somewhere that should be by end of February).
Also worth to note that BlackBerry has implemented its own security mesures.

Anyway, I am not saying that Priv is perfect phone, all I am saying that Android is better option than Windows Phone. And if you want high-end security, you would go with BB10 probably (as far as I know it has some government certificates for security).

Yeah, unfortunately no businessman in his right mind would buy this lowtech, unappealing, overpriced thing.

Sony sold the VAIO brand back in 2014... you are behind the time http://www.theverge.com/2014/7/1/5859994/vaio-is-back

I just switched from Windows 10 Mobile to Android (after over 10 years of OS loyalty) and it is because a mid range phone like this cost $200 on the platform, and I can get the same specs on Android at half the cost. e.g. the new Honor 5x which has strikingly similar looks and specs, but a WHOLE lot more to offer.

One good, second bad, from Sony.
Use Microsoft OS as a cue ball. but to say that a complete set of phone with 13MP camera and an additional 5MP for business people....to laugh with tears..:))))

Anand, 04 Feb 2016Hi Lilly, Dont go with the internet blogs. Try once any win... moreTypical consumer:
A: Hey, check out this app on my phone.
B: Oh, but I don't have it on my Windows Phone.
A: hahaha

That's it. You can be the best and most efficient OS, doesn't matter when the customer's experience in apps is not on par with his/her friends. He/she will simply get a cheap Android next time (and today, any mid-range Android actually is not bad). Consumers expect a similar app library, but WP cannot deliver that.

And there's one huge giant called Google that decided to not bother with Windows Phone. The app gap will always exist, and Windows Phone will always lose.

Very interesting, Sony didn't release Windows powered phones since a long long time. Vaio is a name that has been around in the tech world so why not, maybe they can sell some good phones. I like this one.
